The City is now providing second COVID-19 booster doses to individuals 50 years and older and certain immunocompromised individuals.
Immunocompromised individuals include people with a range of conditions, such as recipients of organ or stem cell transplants, people with advanced or untreated HIV infection, recipients of active treatment for cancer, people who are taking some medications that weaken the immune system, and others.
A second booster dose of the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine may be administered to individuals 50 years of age and older at least 4 months after receiving the first booster dose. Additionally:
- A second booster dose of the Pfizer vaccine may be administered to certain immunocompromised individuals 12 years of age and older at least 4 months after receiving the first booster dose
- A second booster dose of the Moderna vaccine may be administered to certain immunocompromised individuals 18 years of age and older at least 4 months after the first booster dose
- Adults who received a primary vaccine and booster dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least 4 months ago may now receive a second booster dose using an mRNA vaccine
